This article covers the mob drop. Not to be confused with health.

A Heart is an item occasionally dropped from defeated Monsters, broken Pots, slain NPCs and all bosses. Similar to the Star only drops when a player has below full mana, Hearts do not drop unless there is an injured player nearby, though they can still be picked up by players with full health. When collected, they are immediately consumed without entering the player's inventory, restoring 20 Heart. There is no healing cooldown for Hearts, as they are not affected by the Potion Sickness debuff.

As of the 1.2.1 update, any heart drops will turn into Candy Apples during Halloween. They still provide 20 Heart upon pick up.

As of the 1.2.2 update, any heart drops will turn into Candy Canes during Christmas. They still provide 20 Heart upon pick up.

When buffed by the Heartreach Potion, players have a greatly increased pickup range for Hearts.

  • Hearts are dropped by Heart Statues that are powered with Wire. This is a powerful healing tactic, often used in boss battles as of patch 1.1.
